Dating Your Cancer Man

Your Cancer date is more than likely full of emotional turmoil. Regardless, he will appear calm, cool, and completely under control since it Cancer is a Cardinal signmaking the Crab self confident.

He will make is decisions based on emotion instead of logic because of his ruling astrological planet, the Moon. The Moon represents emotions, feelings, and mother or mother figure. Mr. Cancer is also a natural ruler of the fourth house which influences the areas of your life such as home, mother, ancestry, and family.

Mr. Crab has strong feelings that usually aren’t apparent, and he is a strong representative of leadership. Don’t make the mistake of confusing kindness for weakness, for Mr. Crab will live up to his name, and you will lose a good friend.

Cancer Man in Love

Your Cancer man has deep, deep feelings that he keeps hidden under his shell. He may be a soft shelled crab and expose is vulnerable side to you sooner than you anticipate. He is likely to be a Mama’s boy, so you may need to train him if he is young.

Your Crab has a terrific balance of being nurturing and positive, and strict and consistent in disciplining. Because of their nurturing nature, Cancer’s usually make great parents. You may want to take this into consideration if you are serious about a long term relationship.

Cancereans are not all the Same

Each of us has a Sun sign, a Moon sign, and a Rising sign, often called the Ascendant. These three placements have equal amounts of pull in someone’s natal chart; also called a birth chart. The astrological planets are in constant movement continuously transiting through all of the constellations and each of our houses in a transit chart. A transit chart is the actual continual perpetual motion of the universe above us. When the charts are compared it is shown why some of us have certain personality traits, and others do not.

There are other aspects in the person’s natal chart that contribute to an individual’s personality. None of us are exactly the same. However, common dominant traits are easy to find if you look for them.

The birth chart, can expose many more individual and detailed traits that person possesses. There are aspects between the planets and in the houses that assist in revealing your personality.To really discover the details of your emotions, actions, and relationships, you will need the exact date, time and place of your birth, and have a professional read your birth chart.

      My husband was a Cancer and I am an Aquarius. We were matched by EHarmony and were an excellent match until deep depression/midlife crisis brought on by several deaths. He died recently and was such a wonderful man. I will always love him despite our supposed not compatibility.

      I've read a lot about Cancers having close relationships to their mothers. I'm curious though, the Cancer man I am dating recently told me his mother tragically passed away of cancer. He said it was really difficult but that he's gotten past it and beyond that is pretty tight lipped about her. Just curious how the loss of a mother affects a Cancer, whether male or female.

      Great hub, and so true. My moon is in Cancer, and the only person I have ever loved was a Cancer. He committed suicide a couple of years ago, and It was a great loss for me because I have never felt for anyone the way I felt for him

      I'm not sure I'll ever get over him, and the events that took place

      Thanks for sharing, I voted it up
